      Poweramp v3 BETA TEST preview build 790, including brand new user interface, has now been released - 30 April 2018. This is not quite feature-complete yet, so only install if you are happy to test with a slightly reduced set of options.  Missing features should be completed during May.

DON'T INSTALL IF RUNNING ANDROID 8.1

8 posts in this topic

So far, if you read different parts in this forum, v2 is not going to get fixed until v3 is done. In a previous post, I was even told to roll back my phone to 8.0 instead of the developer fixing this app.

If that's the kind of support you'll get from these clowns, don't buy this app. Hit these guys where it hurts, the pocket book.

It would be better if Poweramp reduced its target api by one so oreo users would not be able to run or download it. Deliver the new release first rather than trying to catch up with android releases.

On the other hand, depriving users who have oreo of Poweramp is not fair either so I guess the developer cannot win and has to receive  comments as posted above.

@wasatchbl1 I assume you are making these same complaints to Google, who are actually the ones who broke Notifications with their 8.1 update? I'm sure there will be a workaround to this issue in a future release of Poweramp (which you already know full well without starting a new thread) and I would remind you (again, as you already know) that the Poweramp core app works fine, it's only the Notification controls that Google broke.

@wasatchbl1You do not quite understand how this works. With Marshmallow Google decided to prevent users writing to their sdcards which "broke" most apps. Even now there are apps that do not work properly. They introduced a new framework but even this changed with each subsequent release. This time (Oreo) they decided to substantially change they wsy notifications work. Again developers have to figure out how the new methods work and amend their apps. This takes time and Poweramp will adjust the code but it takes time. No need to get frustrated or angry at Poweramp. As Andre says, Google is the culprit, time and time again.

Google own android and simply introduce whatever they feel is necessary leaving developers to catch up.

Fully agree with this. 
I believe is developer job to update it where there is 1 million of ppl that has bought it. Developer need to catch up. We pay for it. Dev, I wish u can put more effort to this.
